Blade finish ground. This is the only blade that I've ever made that I didn't sand all of the grind lines out of but in keeping with the rustic theme I only took it to 180 grit and left it there.


Rosewood scales epoxied and curing.

Normally get them semi close with a metal cutting band saw and then go to the grinder. I did this one with an angle grinder and a cut off wheel and paid the price.

Except for the sheath it's as finished as it's going to get. I really don't know if I'll make another one out of the spring or not. I don't think I could sell it for enough to justify all of the hours that I have in it.
